01

Multi-Actor Platform

Joint design and evaluation, with stakeholder and region sensitivity, of sustainable management and management options for agricultural resources.

02

Construction and harmonization of databases

Agroecosystem management activities, water resources management, nutrient balance and agro-environmental impacts on soil, water and atmosphere.

03

Modeling platform

It allows exploring the potential impact of agricultural management scenarios on air and water quality in the agricultural-fluvial zone continuum.

04

Selection of management scenarios

Selection of agroecosystem management scenarios to increase their sustainability.

05

Tool for visualizing agri-environmental impacts

For the evaluation of the potential environmental impact of agricultural practices on the waters and the atmosphere.

Multi-actor platform

Co-design of management strategies

AgroGreen-SUDOE incorporates the vision and sensitivities of the main actors involved in the agricultural production processes and the development of public policies through the AgroGreen-SUDOE Multi-Actor Platform, in which all beneficiary partners and associates participate. The two main functions of the platform are:
01
Provide quality information to design and propose different agricultural management scenarios and evaluate the agri-environmental impact of different agricultural management scenarios in agroecosystems of the SUDOE territory.
02
Co-design management strategies for these production systems that lead to a decrease in these impacts on water quality, the emission of polluting compounds into the atmosphere and the emission of greenhouse gases.

Construction and harmonization of databases

This task group seeks to generate robust, harmonized databases that are sensitive to regional realities and actors in the SUDOE territory. The main databases of the project are:
See results

AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES (GT1). 

Agricultural management in the main crops of each basin, with a special focus on fertilization and irrigation. Diffuse and point sources of contamination of water, soil and atmosphere.

DATA GENERATED IN SITU (PILOT TESTS) (GT2). 

On emissions of greenhouse gases and polluting compounds to water and atmosphere in representative agricultural areas and in riverbank areas at the interface of the above and river channels.

DATA ON WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT AND AGRO-ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS (GT2 AND 3). 

Management and use of reservoirs together with information on the deposit of potentially polluting compounds within natural spaces close to agricultural production systems.

It allows estimating the agro-environmental impacts, on water and air quality, of agricultural management strategies co-designed within the Mulit-Actor Platform.

Using modeling tools, modeling experts from the UPM, the CNRS and other internationally relevant research groups make
estimates of the sources of potential pollutants, transformation and nutrient flows in the agricultural land-river-sea continuum in the SUDOE territory.

There are two models to be developed at the river basin level:

Nutrient flow models 
Models of emissions of polluting compounds

Management scenarios

Selection of management scenarios

See results
In this task group, the agricultural management scenarios selected and defined in GT1 (in a work developed and carried out within the framework of the multi-actor platform) are evaluated, using the improved modeling tools (GT3), adapted to the reality of the SUDOE regions and validated with existing data and those obtained in GT2.

The objective of this WG is to evaluate the potential of the scenarios to increase the sustainability of the agricultural production systems
of the great Tagus and Garonne basins, and their impact on neighboring natural spaces, through the minimization of emissions of compounds potentially pollutants, such as ammonia and nitrates, and greenhouse gases.

The selection of management scenarios will focus on:

Fertilization Management
Water Resources Management
Management of riparian areas

Visualization tool

Visualization of agri-food impacts

See results
With the information generated in the previous GTs (1-4), a visualization tool of agri-environmental impacts associated with each of the evaluated management scenarios (GT4), will be built, which will allow, with regional and actor sensitivity, to identify the best agricultural practices and / or land use management. 

The display format will be a map of the main basins of the SUDOE territory, with special detail in those of the Tagus and Garonne. For this, it will have “stream map” technology, which allows the incidence of the
different management practices implemented to be visualized by layers. The impacts shown will be the emissions to the atmosphere of greenhouse gases (GHG), ammonia (NH3) and N oxides, and the leaching of nitrates to water; the environmental footprint and crop yields. 

A panel will also be shown with the AgroGreen-SUDOE categorization of the practices (from least to most impactful in the middle) and their alignment with the principles of the new Common Agricultural Policy and the Farm-to-Table strategy of the European Green Pact.
